    HM The first 25% was so strong but then it became a long decrescendo I enjoyed this as an audiobook, I find memoirs work really well when someone is reading them to you and you feel like they re coming right from the authors mouth, but this definitely started to become repetitive and the message of tech is sexist and I didn t fit in got boring I definitely learned some stuff and enjoyed moments but it fell a bit flat 3

    In her debut memoir, Uncanny Valley, Anna Wiener recounts how, at age 25, she abandoned her drab job at a New York literary agency for a high paying customer support role at a Silicon Valley start up In compulsively readable prose the writer describes how the excitement she first felt toward working in the tech industry soon soured, after repeated encounters with her white male peers sexism, racism, and disregard for user privacy

    I usually avoid reading about tech, but the excerpt on n plus one made me laugh out loud Once I actually picked the book up, it was really hard to put down The writing in this book is so good It s funny, and it s incisive, and it really captures a specific time and place extremely well Men in restaurants are dressed, typically, to traverse a glacier Perks offered by Google land between the collegiate and the feudal Anna Wiener capture

    This book is badged as an inside look into the world of tech bro s by a woman who was there However, the books main insights, that the men who work in Silicon Valley are mainly white, middle class and supremely confident men who think that every idea they have has value, are nothing you didn t already know I kept on reading, expecting that there would be a gotcha moment, an insight into a well known public occurrence, but it never came

    Audiobook.read by Suehyla El Attar 8 hours and 14 minutes For Anna Wiener, working in the high tech industry from where she came from a literary book background was like learning a foreign language For the old farts who have lived in the Bay Area and witnessed the Silicon Valley growth the tech growth the changes from fruit orchards to new startups will be shaking their heads smiling laughing cringing occasionally while saying oh, my gosh,

    free review copy Hmmmm Sigh I had such such high hopes.Well, how about a summary Privileged 20 something white female goes to work in Silicon Valley in tech Literally nothing happens to her except she now knowsabout tech and makesmoney than she should and becomes disillusioned with the ridiculousness of it all Then all of a sudden there s an election and everyone else also kind of gets disillusioned but also keeps making tons of money and doing

    DNF I tried and tried again but my interest in start ups and the excessive money they draw is just not there For the most part this is garnering good reviews, but it s just not for me.
